8-9" is probally the max size in captivity. Getting any bigger means you have to have them in a big as tank and probally have bought them in a big size to start with.

Those are sweet! Mine is about 3.5 inches right now, I can't wait till mine gets as big as those. However, mine is a little badass, I can only imagine how sweet he will be at larger size!

yeah mines 3.5"

those big ones are awesome! imagine keeping a couple of those in the same tank. i think it could be done with lots of hiding spots. i think spilos are one of the best looking Ps besides piraya.

it's dead

he had to shut off the power to do some rewiring in the kitchen and the filter was off, when he turned the power back on for whatever reason that filter never started back up.
